Motto: our new motto for 2010

This is our motto for 2010 ... taken from the readings on the 3rd Sunday of Advent (Gaudete Sunday ... or Rose Sunday).... here's the full scripture quote that the kids will be learning and, God-willing, taking to heart this year of 2010:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice! Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near. Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.

Each line of this particular scripture reading tells so much about our Catholic faith!  You'll be reading more about this as 2010 blossoms ....
